STILL IN TIN LIZZIE CLASS
Horseshoe Bend subscriber will please take note
I've jus got through reading the poem that he wrote.
I'll tell you Old Timer, the same things I thought
Of some of the oil stock that lately I bought.
A red-faced gazabo with white-collared neck
Persuaded me to write a post dated check;
You know as a rule it isn't in y plan
To do any business with an oil drilling man.
But the hope did rise in my bosom, you see,
To compete in the oil game with Mr. John D.
Though the fact of the matter is 1 didn't intend
To invest quite so heavy in Idaho Blend.
But the thing it looked oily, especially the talk- •
I would have bought more if my wife didn't balk,
For the stock certificates looked awfully nice,
You couldn't have heat them, considering the price.
In fancy I dreamed of some grandeur and style,
Ana some things we would do when we would strike ile.
But the turn of events has caused me to fret
When they moved the oil well to the town of Payette,
r.' and drill that cost lots of kale
They have moved it again on over to Vale.
I would sell this oil stock ere it is too late,
For perhaps it will wander clear out of the state.
It has always been an ambition of mine
To own a big car in the Cadillac line;
But as those oil visions from fancy do pass
1 begin to get back in the Tin Lizzie class.

price of coal will soar to unheard of
prices. This is the opinion of capable
authorities who have made a close in-,
vestigation of the subject.
In the history of coal mining in the
districts supplying fuel to Idaho there
never has been such a low production
as at present. The mines ¥iave been
practically idle for a long time on ac
count of lack of orders. With the ex
ception of the Mutual Coal Co., sup
plying coal so far to stockholders
only, there has not been a mine in
Utah, for example, working more than
an average of two days a week.
This means that when the fall de
mand comes the mines will not be in
a position to supply it.
cars will be scarce owing to crop
movements then. Meantime the
m j nus are forced to the expense of a
certain heavy overhead, although
p rac tjeally idle, and the public will
The investigation referred to dis
closes that there will be no reduction
in price, although there are quotations
on inferior coal at lower than $5
ton, the ruling price in Utah mines.
For standard coal, such as most peo
ple must have, the price will be main
lained at the mine because the ar
rangement with the miners runs until
May 1, next year.
There will be no reduction in the
freight rate, as announced by the
railrodas and by the interstate com
merce commission head.
Driest, general agent of the Oregon
Short Line, said: "There i^ no pros
pect whatever of a reduction in the
freight rate on coal, nor is there any
hope for a cut in the mine prices..
We are advised that many people who
ordinarily store coal have deferred do
ing so on the theory that they will be
able to buy it later on for leas money.

week, The Index seems to have done
an injustice to the night oprator at
the telephone office when the state

required to get her to respond to a
telephone call to give the alarm. The
operator sayB she was on duty, being
engaged in getting a long distance call
to Boise; that she promptly called
City hall; but could get no response;
that later she tried one of the cigar

will also say we are very sorry, as
we have made many warm friends and
